The Concept of "Run"..i.e., Distance per Stroke
« on: July 01, 2020, 10:48:08 AM »
Hi everyone - I'm in my third week of SUP.  I'm hooked! I did my first "time trial" this morning. Talk about humble pie...not so fast. 3k in 26 mins. I need to find the right balance between stroke rate (currently in the low 30's) and power. In the rowing community there is a lot of focus on how a boat "runs" - basically the glide you get between strokes. What drills do you all recommend to improve distance per stroke? Also, perhaps I have this all wrong and need to focus on getting my stroke rate in the 40's before focusing on distance per stroke? I'm a blank canvas and open to any ideas.

Low 30's is a comfortable touring pace but too much idle time to be concerned about Distance Per Stroke. If you can bring it to low 40's and maintain 10ft per stroke average you'll be making progress.

Thanks Burchas. I'll focus on stroke rate for the next few weeks. About measuring distance per stroke - what is the best monitor/GPS device to track this?

In early stages I believe a standard Garmin GPS watch should do the trick. Lots of useful metrics to track progression.
